I saw both Senator Brownback and Governor Romney speak for the first time today.
Senator Brownback was a good speaker who emphasized both social and economic issues. He mentioned his Kansas farming roots, gay marriage, judicial activism, and the war on terror. He has some core support and may be a dark horse candidate in the presidential race.
Romney was an excellent speaker. He said all of the right things. He declared himself pro-life and pro-marriage, but spent the most time on taxes, government waste and jobs. He is a Michigan native from Oakland County and lived here till he was 19.
I'll post more in detail when I get back from the conference.
